BDN interviews Entsminger on economic impact of Maine agritourism

Bangor Daily News interviewed Jason Entsminger, University of Maine Cooperative Extension assistant professor, small business specialist and Maine Business School assistant professor of entrepreneurship and innovation, on how Maine farms are increasing their economic impact in the state and nationally through agritourism. Agritourism can range from overnight stays on a farm to cutting down a Christmas tree or visiting farms on Maine Maple Sunday. “Agritourism is a natural fit for Maine,” said Entsminger. “We have such a rich heritage along the coast and inland around agriculture and natural resources.”
